Hybrids seem to be a lot more common than you'd think in Azeroth. It seems almost every humanoid species is capable of mating with every other humanoid species (perhaps that is why they are called races instead of species by Blizzard).If you consider the RPG books to be lore accurate... then you are looking at a huge percentage of of all human children living in Alliance cities are half-orc. The Hillsbrad region being the most concentrated, with nearly 3% of all humans in the area being half-orc.I don't mind hybrids, but it's usually a good idea to not have them be major lore characters. Med'an is an example of a badly written hybrid, because his ancestry makes him godlike. I'm really tired of hybrid species getting all the good traits of their parents, and none of the bad.

As part of a conversation last week, I made a list of every racial combination, I was able to find which produced at least one offspring in lore... From this list, it's not hard to imagine that every race in Azeroth is capable of breeding with any other race.EVERY ONE of these hybrids currently exists in lore...Human/DraenaiHuman/GiantHuman/DragonHuman/Night ElfHuman/High ElfHuman/OgreHuman/OrcOrc/DraenaiOrc/OgreNight Elf/TrollNight Elf/Eredar

Since no actual biological evolution exists and entire races are created due to a matrix glitch or a curse, I guess it's not too far a stretch to go with all races can breed.You just have to get rid of the whole sperm and ova thing. Apparently in this universe, when humanoids mate (with the possible exception of the undead) the male shoots arcane missles in the female's mana receptacle at which point the forces join together like Play-Doh and create a whole new toon.Also, all bad genes are removed by magic when hybrids are bred. That's why they all so far have amazing powers (of observation).Sorry got a little Pink Floyd there.

EVERY ONE of those exist in Lore?Names and links please.

Not all of them are major lore characters, like Garona, Rexxar, Alodi, and Med'an, but rather simply ones which are noted to exist.For example, the Night Elf / Eredar combination is from rape during the War of the Ancients. Night Elf / Troll is also a rape combination that produced children.http://www.wowwiki.com/Half-breed

Yeah, there should be more bad traits. But, heck no reason they can't be thourough bred, but 100% of the time they get all teh best traits is kinda dogey.Is it just me though? I always thought Lantresor was really cool, maybe it was just his blade and Jokeresqe like chaos warfare tactics but I wanna see more of him.

@CaryEverettWow. Humans are playas.

@GrumblyStuffDevelopers get bored and lonely while locked in the offices writing new lore. And considering the devs are more likely than not, human... you can guess what happens.

@ CaryEverettAbout Lelior.... The way him and Ciarin tease each other in the comic, I always interpreted that comment as a joke. Lelior's response is likely just a come-back. It neither indicates that he is part troll, nor does it indicate that Ciarin does not have a mother. (It's possible that Ciarin's mother is dead, and Lelior is referencing that with his comment, but that seems uncharacteristically bitter and cruel between two individuals that are close friends like they are.) Not saying that a troll/elf hybrid can't exist, just that I think people are taking that comment too seriously.

Yeah, some of these "half-races" listed are really weak in their justification.Half-giants, because of the vrykul, even though they are their own unique race? The term "half-giant" was used to describe their size, not associate their lineage--we even see that humans are descended from the vrykul, not one of their two parent races.
